As a member of the Albemarle County School Board, I think we desperately need the African American Teaching Fellows to help us realize our goals of having a diverse cadre of highly qualified teachers in our classrooms. A workforce that reflects the diversity in our community will pay dividends for student achievement and cultural awareness.

—Brian Wheeler,
Chair, Albemarle County School Board
Our mission is to recruit, support, develop, and retain a cadre of African American teachers to serve the schools of Charlottesville and Albemarle County.
